Hellraiser Bestiary #4
Words: Lela Gwenn, Christian Francis, Ben Meares & Mark Miller
Pictures: Daniele Serra, Huseyin Ozkan, & Carlos Magno
Anthologies are awesome. Kind of like a sampler case of beer. You get a taste of a couple of different flavors while not having to commit full on to any single one. Well, if you’ve got a taste for horror, then consider this your twelve pack sampler. (Ok, so it’s actually a three pack, but you get the drift.)
Sleepy Hollow #2 (of 4)
Words: Marguerite Bennett
Pictures: Jorge Coelho
Maybe it’s the freshly fallen snow outside my window, but I really appreciate the entire esthetic of this issue. The whole thing just has a cool gothic feel to it and I really dig that.
Criminal Macabre: The Third Child #3
Words: Steve Niles
Pictures: Christopher Mitten
I have to give it up to Steve Niles, this dude has me hooked. I’m so digging this Third Child story arc like I’m digging on sour beers right now. Yeah, they’re shocking, and bold and in your face and some people might turn their noses up to them… But when you settle in and enjoy them for the bold, in your face flavorful journeys they are, you find that they rock out loud. So does this book.
Terminator: Salvation: The Final Battle #11
Words: J. Michael Straczynski

Jumping in on a 12 issue mini-series at issue 11 may not be the brightest thing in the world, but hot damn, I’m pretty happy I jumped in when I did.
Thomas Alsop #6
Words: Chris Miskiewicz
Pictures: Palle Schmidt
I think I’ve figured it out. No, not some major secret or plot line in Thomas Alsop. Nope. I think I’ve finally put my finger on why I like Thomas Alsop so much. I kind of want to be him.
Evil Empire #7
Words: Max Bemis
Pictures: Andrea Mutti
And the cracks are already beginning to show… or are they? Man, Bemis keeps things weird and twisted in this book.
Words: Michael Alan Nelson

When is the CW going to turn this into a TV Show? Seriously. It’s right up their alley and it’ would rock out loud.
Allow me to make my case:
Deep State #1
Words: Justin Jordan
Pictures: Ariela Kristantina
I’m a sucker for a conspiracy theory. I’m also a sucker for good marketing. And ever since I saw the teaser image for this book (which ended up being the cover to issue #1) I wanted to get my hands on it. And here we are.
Grindhouse: Slay Ride #1
Words: Alex De Campi

I hope you’re wearing your creepy weird pants, because you’re going to need ‘em with this story. Because, you know, it’s creepy and weird.

So let me get this straight: We’ve got thieves, covert organizations, and people who can channel their skills from their past lives into today? Go on…
